Science and the Media: Report Published

One of the other Expert Groups have just published their report, which can be found here, along with a summary of the group's actions and recommendations.

Lord Drayson, Minister for Science and Innovation, responded on behalf of BIS, saying:

“I'm very grateful to Fiona and her group for producing this Action Plan. The quality of journalism by the UK's specialist press is excellent, so it's great these actions are targeted at protecting and building on it.

The plan contains a number of initiatives to raise the profile of science journalism and programming and improve their operating environment.

I'm particularly pleased by how many organisations, from the BBC to the Wellcome Trust and RCUK, have committed to actions. Government will now consider the proposed actions and recommendations.”

I'll post more about my group's report after our next meeting (as it's not been published yet, I'm not sure how much I'm meant to share...).
